Starfish Boy

The faint blue line
Signalling your journey’s start
Was a storm in my skull
Maelstrom of fear and energy
Excitement and terror
The pale grey vortex
Dipping in and out of focus
A beat showing your reality
And the first butterflies
Of spring sung in your bones
The jabs to my ribs
Solidified you
And now little starfish
You lie outstretched
My bed occupied
By wiry limbs
Chubby fists
Feet across my middle
Hands flopped on to my face
You took up every inch inside
Expanding into your world
Like smoke
Now at large
Into every corner you’ll travel
